    Everytime I go to it, it keeps on telling me that its not there. Like its been deleted. I typed it into my URL and it came up with the "Website Suggestion" site that comes up if you typed in a URL thats nonexistent.

    Is this happening to anyone else or just me?

    Maybe they're just maintaining or something!

    Just says the website is down for me. Could be maintenance or out of date DNS host pointing to wrong address.

    It happens to me too! [​IMG] I hope it's just some DNS screw-up.

    I was going to order something from there :/

    I just keep getting address not found.

    could just be their servers went kapoot, they are getting DDOSed, or someone unplugged the server to vacuum....

    atleast, i hope its nothing permanent, i was just about to order something from them too!

    They sent me an email confirming my order was shipped so doubt the site is gone forever. Likely just need a server reboot or forgot to renew the domain name subscription.

    As far as I know, this isn't the first time this has happened in DealXtreme's case. I searched this topic, and I've found all sorts of forum posts and Yahoo Answers questions from various dates about the same thing happening.

    Soo, I'd give it a few days at the most. It should be back up soon. [​IMG]

    ...Or at least I hope it does.

    I have an order that had just been shipped today but it was only like an hour and a half ago that I checked and it did work until now so I bet they didn't just die like that.

    I really doubt DX is "gone" for good. Must be some sort of maintenance.

    I should get something from there DX in the mail within a few days.
    I'm sure the site's fine, just a server problem or something.

    But there's always VolumeRate, either way.(Although I never ordered from there.)

    *twiddles thumbs nervously* I hope its not gone...I doubt it, DX is no stranger to disappearing from the internet for a few days then coming back strong as ever.

    I think (and hope) that DX will be back online tomorrow, it happened the same thing some time ago but it came back [​IMG]

    DX is the greatest and cheapest site for flashcards and all that stuff, it cant die!
